Organic concealer for sensitive skin (INIKA)
INIKA is one of the top organic make-up brands on the market.

However, the organic ingredients of that concealer make it a great option for sensitive skins. Indeed, by getting an INIKA concealer, you are doing your skin a favour.
In addition to conceal your small imperfections, the aloe vera, shea butter and jojoba seed oil it contains will do a great job at moisturizing and nourishing your skin.
No.1 high coverage concealer (Tarte)
After a few lightweight vegan concealers options, here is what many consider the best full-coverage vegan concealer on the market.
Surprisingly, the solution is quite lightweight and blendable for being a full-coverage solution. Plus, unlike many other high coverage concealers, Tarte did a great job at coming up with a product that will keep your skin hydrated.
As for the finish, you can expect a rather matte and opaque result.

Vegan mineral concealer for oily skin (Honeypie Minerals)
The previous vegan concealers on this list are all liquid concealers.
This one by Honeypie, on the other hand, is a loose mineral concealer.
Some might say: “Why go for loose powder, it seems messy?!”. Well yes, in a way, it can be messy. But a loose mineral concealer is also the best option for oily skin, as liquid concealers tend to make your skin oilier.
Thereby, loose mineral concealers are also great for acne-prone skin.
However, dryer or more mature skin may find the powder too “weak” and prefer liquid concealers that offer a fuller, more blendable coverage.
Mineral concealers such as the one from Honeypie Minerals are also made of 100% natural ingredients and free of any harsh chemicals, parabens, and fragrance.
Its purpose is not only to hide your imperfections while offering a matte finish but also to stay gentle on your skin.
